    Has anyone switched to an SSD with 27" late 2015 iMac?

    My office Mac is terribly slow, after a bit of digging it appears my HDD is "failing" and I've read you can switch to an external SSD which not only solves it but makes the iMac much faster! Has anyone done this? Cheers

    Mid-2011 iMac turns itself on

    Twice this week, my mid-2011 iMac has turned itself on when I've plugged in the power cable and turned the plug on. On both occasions, it's booted into sleep mode after restarting itself. The power button works fine at other times. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Thanks.

    It’s got 1Tb of storage with loads of space left and 8Gb of RAM. It’s just running really slow and sometimes the fan can be heard. I’ve done a little bit of reading and the issue appears to be the HDD and possibly a faulty fan. Has anyone here had a similar problem or can say that it most...
